BLAST Premier: The long and imminent “French Curse” has finally been lifted after G2 Esports defeated Astralis in the fall 2020 regular season finals. The “Group-C” match is nearing its end, with both G2 Esports and Vitality winning their respective groups, qualifying for the BLAST Premier: Fall 2020 Finals and losing the CS: GO final with a long French lineup. Breaking through a series of imminent losses. Tournaments, and therefore break the curse!
G2 and vitality finally break the French curse
G2 and Vitality have lost seven finals in various CS: GO tournaments since they began unleashing this curse at BLAST Premier Fall 2020 by winning their respective group finals and participating directly in the main event. This was certainly not an easy task, as both teams had to make individual changes to get rid of this curse.
Vitality with a complete French roster lost in the finals of BLAST Premier Spring 2020, cs_summit 6, ESL One Cologne 2020 and DreamHack Open Fall 2020. Following a series of second-place finishes, Vitality decided to expand the roster to a lineup of six. They brought in 19-year-old Belgian rifler Nabil “Nivera” Benrlitom to break the curse almost instantly and win a “2-1” victory over BIG at the BLAST Premier Fall 2020.
Previously, Vitality lost to BIG on the “2-3” scoreline at cs_summit 5, but lost twice to Heroic and once to Complexity. Now that Nibera has been tested in several competitive matches, vitality seems to be in a better position, and perhaps some more victories await them before the end of the year.
Unlike Vitality, G2 Esports has been quite inconsistent lately, with all second-place finishes at IEM Katowice 2020, ESL One: Road to Rio, and DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 at the beginning of the year.
Since June, the team’s performance has dropped significantly to BLAST Premier Fall 2020, passing through the brackets below to BLAST Premier Fall 2020 to advance to the final, causing Astralis to lose “2-0” and finally 2 of the year. I won the second tournament. But to get out of their slump, G2 Esports needs to sign FaZe Clan’s Nikola “NiKo” Kovac, to help him carry the G2 on multiple maps and lift the “French curse”. I found it worthwhile to do.
Both Vitality and G2 Esports are flipping through new leaves and there are still many tournaments in place by the end of the year, so see if either can win more tournaments in the future or return to what they missed. Would be interesting to win.
